The BlackBerry PlayBook has already been around for some time already, but while it boasts of solid hardware, the same cannot be said where software is concerned. After all, this just goes to reinforce the point that we have been sharing all this while – there is value in the software more than the hardware, which explains why seemingly inferior devices would do better in the market if they have the right kind of software backing them up, and vice versa. Well, the latest news involving the BlackBerry PlayBook would be to see it arrive via Sprint this coming June 5th – we know, that is just a couple of days away, but the word came from Sprint’s Market Director Gerald Evans himself.
The much anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with Wi-Fi connectivity and 16 GB of storage will go on sale in all Sprint direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Business Sales, www.sprint.com and Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) on Sunday, June 5, for $499.99 (plus tax).
That was what Gerald mentioned on his personal blog, so right now we just have to sit tight and wait for an official announcement from RIM or Sprint themselves, or both.
